Time to put the wheels into motion for the one or more SnakePitSpringTrainingFests - hereafter referred to as SPSTF - which will be taking place during the Cactus League. However, the most official event will be Saturday March 24. There are several reasons for this choice:
1) It's a Saturday
2) It's an evening game, so we won't have to endure the worst of the (literally) blistering sun.
3) It's against Kansas City, which means one thing: FRENCHIE!

We will be picnicking on the lawn in right field, showing Messrs. Upton and Francoeur some love, in the way only the SnakePit know how. Tickets are $8 plus the inevitable Ticketbastard fees (which I've just seen, work out at close to 50% if you buy two tickets - really, WTF?), available here - you're all responsible for your own purchases.

Full schedule and more thoughts after the jump.

We are certainly open to attending other games - already bought tickets for the March 12th game over by SnakePit Towers in Goodyear. I have heard rumors that 'charmer is also looking to be in the area, so there's a very good chance of a supplemental SnakePitSpringTrainingFest (or SSPSTF...) being arranged for that in due course. But generally, feel free to use this thread for discussion. What games are you going to?
